My career before entrepreneurship was a fun and adventure filled life of canvassing door to door for an environmental non profit. Knocking on doors 4 hours per day, 5 days per week, asking strangers who did not know I was coming for money, signatures, and hand written letters.
It takes a rare breed to do this.
Or does it?
That career taught me the incredibly valuable and profitable skill of sales.
Today, I run a business where I book podcast guests. I send hundreds of ‘cold emails’ and ask people for their time and expertise in an interview and I offer them no compensation.
The skills I learned going door to door are the same skills I use today! Watch this episode of Interview Connections TV to hear more about how I apply these skills to Interview Connections!
